What You Need To Know:
The Philip Kingsley Lipid Shield Oil restores your lipid layer - the hair’s first line of defence against everyday damage - for healthy, soft and shiny locks. Using a castor oil and sebacic acid blend, the trichologist-approved formula repairs damage caused by colouring, chemical processing, UV rays and heat styling. It does this after just one use, creating an instantly softer and smoother feel.
The Bond Builder Oil contains advanced biomimetic technology that coats each hair strand to protect the hair cuticle, while restoring shine and slip to detangle and defrizz damaged tresses. The scientifically-tested formula restores your hair’s resistance to water so it’s less vulnerable to environmental stress using a 18-MEA derivative. Camellia oil also joins the mix as it’s packed with hair-loving vitamins and antioxidants.
Why It’s Escentual:
As Philip Kingsley's first-ever hair oil for all types and textures, the Lipid Shield Oil instantly caught our attention here at Escentual HQ. We were really impressed by its formula, but we also love the way it feels just as much as we love its tech-powered formulation. The Bond Builder Oil has a lightweight, silky-soft texture that instantly absorbs into your locks to add a subtle shine without leaving behind an unwanted greasy finish. As the icing on the cake, it releases a refreshing, uplifting and clean citrus-floral scent as it does so. Plus, its travel-friendly size means that it’s easy to pop into travel bags to keep your tresses protected wherever you are.
The Best Way To Use It:
Shake well before use. Tilt the bottle and tap the base to dispense 5-6 drops into the palm of your hand; for shorter hair, start with 2-3 drops and build up your usage depending on the damage.
As the first step in your styling routine, apply to the mid-lengths and ends of towel-dried hair and leave in. Use every 2-3 washes to restore your lipid layer.
The Sustainable Side:
The Lipid Shield Oil is housed within an 100% recyclable bottle and box.
